UCSF is committed to providing equitable, inclusive access and provision of reasonable accommodations to students, employees, trainees, patients, and guests with disabilities for all programs and services.
UCSF is committed to removing barriers so that all may have equal access to physical, environmental, and electronic UCSF properties, programs, and services. This includes the selection of new electronic products or services.
Generally, the most efficient way to obtain access to UCSF is to contact the program, department, or office in which the access barrier is located. Students are encouraged to contact Student Disability Services, and employees are encouraged to contact Disability Management Services first whenever possible. However, additional UCSF resources are available at any time.
Patients or visitors to the UCSF Health system may request accommodation via their healthcare team or applicable location staff. Additional information or questions may be directed to Patient Relations.
